Nuclear Expert: Fukushima “very critical for entire humankind”; “Japan won’t let any foreign experts visit… they are behaving rather strangely” — Nuclear Scientist: Radioactive emissions still taking place all the time; Pouring contamination in ocean may cause “elimination of fish resources”

Oleg Dvoynikov, the editor-in-chief of Pro atom magazine, Jan. 22, 2014: “As far as the cooling of earth is concerned, surely, it’s possible to do it from a technical point of view. But they will need a nitrogen unit, practically, a plant working non-stop. It’s bad the Japanese won’t let any foreign experts visit the station. And there were offers of help, not only from Russia but from many other countries too [...] Even if the soil around the nuclear power plant is totally frozen, this won’t fully eliminate the danger [...] I believe that the liquidation of the Fukushima accident’s consequences might have been much better organized if the works were managed not by the company that operates the Fukushima plant but by the Japanese government. This would have made the works much more effective – and much cheaper. [...] The Japanese are behaving rather strangely [...] First, for some reason, they do not hurry to clean up the consequences of the catastrophe until the situation becomes very critical for the entire humankind. Then, they start to do something, but, again for some unknown reason, they invent very complicated decisions, although they might have invented foreign specialists who would have helped them to build waste treatment facilities a long time ago. This would have been much cheaper and much more effective.”

Igor Ostretsov, nuclear scientist and manager during 1986 Chernobyl disaster, Jan. 22, 2014: “It shouldn’t be forgotten that radioactive emissions at the Fukushima power plant are still taking place all the time since the beginning of the catastrophe. The reactors are cooling, the plant’s workers don’t know what they should do with the water that cools the reactors, and simply pour it into the sea. This may lead to nothing than elimination of fish resources, however toughly controlled the process may be.”

    It would make sense the Japanese aren't allowing anyone on site, if there actually were a secret advanced weapons program there. It's hard to explain the complete lack of cooperation w/o considering such a program. But then again, there are signs the NRC, GE, the DOE and others are quietly working behind the scenes, beyond the public eye.

      yes. i believe you are right, plenty of involvement just nothing they will allow the public to be privy to.

        My friend you have such faith in these devil corporations that feed off the suffering and poverty of mankind. They threaten governments and hold them under a spell of destroying civilisation. Yet they do so in ways of genetic warfare, for example aids and atomic radiation. There is great profit to be made out of the misery and suffering of mankind. These evil corporations couldn't care less if you lived or died, what pervert foods they create for profit or the consequences of their meddling in nature. They certainly trust in God.

        Now let's get the record straight TEPCO do not own the atomic radiation pollution machines, they lease them from corporations that hide their criminal shame. That threaten indemnity from prosecution for their criminal actions. We will help you as long as we're not revealed for our shame. I'm surprise they didn't build their atomic titanic power machines on top of volcanoes, although that would be too obvious, better fault Lines, force governments to run them till they fail and then sell off radiography technology for their invented disasters.

        Now let's see which of these corporations are heavily involved in radiography technology; oh silly goose me, THE ALL ARE! General Electric/ Hitachi, Toshiba….

        No one seems to be saying anything about the rocketdyne disaster in California that was 100s of times worse than 3 mile Island. Not even a protective concrete dome. Fancy building a sodium reactor, it was written on the wall to…

            Our comments were not aimed at you personally my friend, but those whom hide in the shadows protecting their already ruined credibility in their pursuit of greed above humanity.

            These companies have much to gain by allowing the general electric consuming public that, THEY WERE NOT RESPONSIBE AND HAD NO KNOWLEDGE THAT SUCH EVENTS WERE INEVITABLE.

            Building atomic radiation power polluting stations on fault lines sounds criminal, knowing the risks, don't you think? Who gave the technical knowledge for the building of these atomic power polluters in Fukushima?

          Yes, atomic, the Rocketdyne disaster was in 1959[!!] and never publicized. Michael Collins on enviroreporter.com did a lot on that before he was apparently "disappeared." No one has the definitive on that. The website is still up, but with NO recent commentaries and his radio appearances stopped cold.

            I read this account on CNN probably in 2011. A couple, they were well know activists, were
            walking on the beach together on an isolated strip of land in Chile. Some guy came up to them and shot them both in the head.

            It is terrible, but that is what dissappeared means. No one ever found the guy who shot them . And no one but that guys own conscience will ever find him.

            We Not They Finally, you might like this 8min doco from the History Channel on YouTube….

            "History Channel – ROCKETDYNE" if this 7 year old clip has been taken down there are others to choose from.

            Another good one is the SL1 disaster, a declassified military doco, also on YouTube. I think the people at wiki put that up.

            It's good that these things are being revealed publicly in the last days of the old empire of materialism, so that the rainbow children can emerge in the 5th world, with isn't a new world order.

            … the Santa Susana Field Lab in California is in 3rd place of the top releasers of radioactive iodine in nuclear power history.

            And THAT is why the rad levels are so high in LA…or is it?

      yah. like i said that was the one thing dropsilla posted i believed. it was a powerpoint about the sacrifices of the fuku 50, and the last 2 or 4 slides was a montage of logos- the logos of all the US govt (and IAEA) agencies, universities and corporations involved in working with the japanese on this issue. everyone from MIT to Stanford to lockheed martin if i am remembering corretly. Do I have a reference to the post or date? no, nor did i save the .pdf. and my post in diret response was one word: <wow>. Because it was socccccccc reeeeeef admitting the <military indust complex> was alreadyworking with Fuku and Tepco.

      you are talking about viruses, advanced billogical and "non lethal" weapons. All kinds of abusive research practices…torture. The secrets embedded with the waste are equally devastating.

      HoTaters, what you say morally is totally true. No one from the outside would be let onto a secret site very likely illegal under international law. But in a practical sense, they CAN'T let anyone in, because it's roasty-toasty.

      At some point (though it's all the wake of damage SO horrendous, that just posing the query may not matter to the fate of the world) it might be questioned how such unimaginably huge stockpiles of dangerous radiation was ever put in one place.

      Though I'd like us to have the answer to that nevertheless.

      ~~~~~~

      Hello TEPCO, your not my friend,

      I've come to kick you're ass again,


      Because your Isotopes are softly creeping,
      
Left its Actinides while I was sleeping,


      And the Nuclides that was planted in my brain


      Still remains


      Within your sound of radiation's silence.

      In restless dreams I walked alone

      Narrow streets of cobblestone,


      'Neath the halo of a BWR lit street lamp,

      I turned my collar to the contaminated cold and damp,


      When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of,

      Gamma ray light


      That split the night


      And created the sound of Atomic death silence.

      And in the Nuclear flash of light I saw

      Ten thousand people dying, maybe more.

      
People talking without the NRC hearing,

      NRC hearing without listening,


      People writing sing say's and poems that voices will share,
      
And only enenews.com dared,


      Disturb the sound of TEPCO's silence.

      [Cont]

        "Fools" said we,"You do not know

        Silence like a cancer grows.


        Hear our words that we might teach you,
        
Take our facts and logic that might reach you.

        
But our words like silent Cesium raindrops fell,
        
As Corium's re-criticality echoed

        
In the Aquifer's wells of silence

        And the people bowed and prayed
        
To the Nuclear Devil they made.

        
And enenews'ers flashed out its warning,
        
In the words that bad shit was forming.

        
And the signs said,

        The words of the prophet s
are written on the subway walls
        
And tenement halls.


        And screamed beyond the sounds of silence.

      This whole thing is a virtual crime against humanity. To allow the Japanese government and TEPCO to perpetuate this mess constitutes the worst offense ever perpetuated against the planet Earth. I used to think the Japanese people embraced honor and truth. Apparently and without doubt I was sadly mistaken. Clearly we cannot allow this to continue. From published reports the Pacific Ocean is dying. I certainly hope this isn't true for if it is can we be far behind?

    They're acting like nothing is wrong.. Nothing to see there..It's fine.. If it was that bad you would read about it in the paper or it would all over the TV… No ones going to die or have died or will ever die from fukushima, just small pockets of fish.. Now go back to work and stop thinking or talking about. (That's what they're saying).. Anyone with have a brain knows that's not the case.. How much can our environment take? We're going to find out because it's not going to stop.
